This darling illustration of two girls playing dressup, one decorating the other's hair, is a special version in blue monochrome with a delightful rococo gold overlay design in the background. Looking at the other scans I've posted, you'll see what the original series looks like and how this one's elegance has been enhanced. This card also has a light gloss finish. The solid black background of those in the original series is often blotchy with lots of fiber content in the paper. I think the printer realized what was happening and set about to make a better version! This card was mailed in Germany in 1908. It shows its age around the edges and at the corners, but overall, for its age, it's in fine condition. 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
If you prefer the colored versions with the black background, I'd be happy to search for you a set (in better condition than what you see here:) Or, if you'd like to collect a complete set of this gold glam version, just let me know and I'll start looking. But just to clarify: this listing is for the single gold rococo overlay card as seen in the first photo.
